Happy 10th Bitcoin anniversary! Ways To Celebrate The Iconic Date
Exactly a month from now on January 3, 2019, Bitcoin will be celebrating precisely ten years since the network was activated and mining on the genesis block begun. The block mined initially by Satoshi, had a timestamp and a short article excerpt from The Times
“The Times 03/Jan/2009 – Chancellor on the brink of the second bailout for banks.”
Another Anniversary Date
Bitcoin's decade-old existence has been unique all along. Initially, crypto enthusiasts began celebrating the publishing of Satoshi's whitepaper (October 31st, 2009) as Bitcoin's birthday. The second occurs on January 3 when Satoshi first mined the genesis block- the first block within Bitcoin's blockchain. However, the latter date seems to be more special since most of the crypto community has settled on it as Bitcoin's unofficial birthday.
While some may merely fancy dinner or a toast to Satoshi's creation, avid crypto enthusiasts may decide to settle on memorabilia to mark the occasion. Already plenty of companies are looking to release Bitcoin commemorative products to help celebrate the event. Check out these commemorative Bitcoin baubles on offer from reputable companies.
